An annual scheme designed to recognise all types of entrepreneurial companies. The awards are designed to celebrate the achievements of the UK's leading enterprises.
Category winners will be presented with an award and benefit from the publicity, media promotion and brand exposure associated with the event.
All Growing Business Awards winners receive automatic membership of the CBI, the UK's premier business lobbying organisation, providing a voice for employers at a national and international level.
The Growing Business Awards (GBAs) is an independent awards programme, launched in 1999 and run in association with the CBI and Real Business Association. The 2016 awards are sponsored by Amazon, BMW, Bupa and eci.
The awards celebrate the achievements of the UK's innovative high-growth businesses. However, it is not just well-established companies that the GBA honours; the awards welcome applications from new, innovative businesses.
No employee of Caspian Publishing or the CBI is entitled to enter.
All UK-based high-growth and entrepreneurial companies, regardless of size or stage of operations, may enter the awards.
Some categories may have more specific entry requirements.
The programme operates on an annual basis.
Winners and shortlisted candidates will receive electronic awards certification. Award winners may state in advertising/promotional activity ad on their stationery/website etc that they are a winner. This information must include the category and the year in which the award was won.
The 2017 awards ceremony will take place on 29 November 2017 at the Brewery, London.
